Mind Your Manners, B.B. Wolf
By Judy Sierra
Illustrated by J. Otto Seibold
Most enjoyed by Kindergartners through 3rd Grade

Good manners never go out of style, so when someone puts a different twist on learning manners, it's worth picking that book up. Especially when the main character is none other than well-known storybook bad guy, Mr. B. B. Wolf.

Mr. Wolf is quite old, living a quiet life at the Villain Villa. One day, he receives an invitation to a storybook tea to be held at the library. Wanting to go but unsure of how to act, B.B. consults a friend who gives him some simple rules to remember about good manners, like not slurping his tea. B.B. heads off the to library confident he'll fit in. He arrives and has a wonderful time, only to forget one important rule at a very important time!

The illustrations add to the fun of the story. Check out of all the storybook characters at the tea. Do you recognize them all? Mr. Wolf's little song about which manners to remember is a handy one, a little something you can take away from this book (as well as a few laughs!).
